Sony Viewdata KTX-9000 Review!!

I’ve probably not mentioned it before, but I have a couple of those old Sony Travel Agent Terminals which were on a long list of things to deal with when I’m bored. So after a year of on/off lockdowns and home working I’ve reached the boredom threshold where I’ve taken a look at the list.

Way back I wrote a program so I could use them as an info screen – but I got stuck and left it. Moving on 25 years later I dug them out of the loft and had a look at what I did and simplified it.

I’ve documented what I did for my first video for my YouTube Channel.

I’ve added an embedded video at the bottom of the post – enjoy!!

Might have done similar posts before, can’t be bothered to search!

Misty Fireworks – Brixham

Bit of a re-work from an old shot from a couple of years ago in Brixham

New Season (slightly late)

It’s that time again – actually it was a few weeks back, but I didn’t get round to posting the images for the 1st Quarterly, or the RoseBowl/3 of a kind.

So these are the efforts for the 2nd Quartlerly:


Central Library
Central Library
Centre Point

The Centre Point image did well in the quarterly as a digital image, but the lights in the building distracted the judge too much – so for the print i’ve toned them down a bit. The Central Library image is one I though might look good as a print – so I’ll give it a go.


Bins – back streets of Brum

Rock n Roll (title might change as I think its shite!)

A couple of randoms for the digital. They might change, but at least I’ve done some!

El Presidente Competition

Hot on the heals of the last quarterly competition it’s the president’s plaque. A print and digital themed competition, this year it’s Wildlife.

I was going to enter a couple of Robin images from the depths of my Lightroom library, but I accidentally showed them to the club whilst demonstrating the club’s new website. So I decided to try a bit of nature in my back garden…..

Morning Brew
Pigeon Portrait

No prints for me on this one as I’ve not got anything ready.
